WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Science Centre Station has advanced to a state which allows the temporary traffic deck to be removed from the roadway. The removal will take place in two stages. The first stage is expected to be complete early May 2020 and will shift to the eastern side of the intersection and continue for approximately four (4) months, until mid-end of September 2020. The removal of the decking will improve road surface quality.
